TSN will have exclusive coverage of more than half of these races, as coverage airs on ESPN and TNT in the US. Here is there press release.

From green flag to checkered flag, TSN and TSN2 hit the track once again with coverage of every single race from the 2012 NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES and 2012 NASCAR NATIONWIDE SERIES, including live coverage of NASCAR’s biggest, richest and most prestigious race, the DAYTONA 500.

Along with the DAYTONA 500, highlights of TSN and TSN2’s 2012 NASCAR schedule include the SPRINT CUP: GATORADE DUEL AT DAYTONA on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. ET on TSN2, which determines the starting grid for Sunday’s championship race, and the NASCAR NATIONWIDE SERIES’ annual stop in Montreal on Aug. 18 at 2 p.m. ET on TSN.

  1. Funny, I did not see the Richmond 400, a night race, on TSN or TSN 2. How mant more disappointment will I have to face??

    • It was on Fox, which everyone with cable has (and as I indicated in this post). TSN and TSN2 didn’t have it due to other commitments (NHL playoffs and NLL lacrosse, I think).

  2. Dont worry MacLeod – all you missed was hundreds of commercial spots – you miss more racing than you see with all the ads on TSN. Might as well wait until next year when Nascar returns to FOX so we can watch on FOX instead of TSN. I am watching the Daytona race right now and cannot believe it. They cannot even wait for the scheduled breaks from the feed – they interupt the race constantly – every few laps, There should be rules against such wanton excess. I turned it off – you can’t watch a race with advertising every two minutes.

    • TSN shows ads at the same time as the American networks (Fox, TNT and ESPN).

      TSN did show ads at the scheduled breaks last night. Every time TSN went to commercial, TNT was showing a little ad on the scorebar at the bottom of the screen. And yes it happened every two minutes. And yes it was annoying. Not TSN’s fault at all though. Really NASCAR needs to produce a separate feed of this race for international viewers because of the odd way TNT broadcasts it in America.
